Inspirational Poetry

Be Thankful

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know everything,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge
because it will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
because it means you've made a difference.

The Dream
by leanne herrera

dare to dream for tomorrow
i hear it in the wind
it beckons me to follow
like a cool breeze on a hot day

hope is a big word
it is what i long for each day
it means new beginnings
it means a new way

they say that there are 2 roads
i believe that there are more
one that is hard
one that is to good to be true
one with laughter
one with fear

i believe that at one point or another they cross
it is our job to find the right path
that is our hope
to find the right one
one that heals
but there are no truly easy paths
i know this it is a lesson that i have learned

i hold in my hand this dream
the dream of tomorrow
the hope for today
a smile to brighten my way
a hug to make me feel safe
a comforting voice
to soothe my fears
and i know i am ok i can press on
it will all right
i have found the road of strength
it carries me
it carries to the dream of tomorrow

To Help You
by Tabby

Through the trials,
You think you all alone.
Through all the trials,
You feel you've been disowned.
Through the trials,
You feel no one cares.

Well I'm here to say:
I am here to care.
When you talk, I'll listen;
When you weep I'll give you a shoulder;
When you scream I'll take it in.

I'm here to love you,
Never let you alone.
The troubles are not yours
But now become ours.

Listen to me my friend,
I'm here in time of need,
Lean on me and the one
Above and you will be relieved.

~~Life Without Friendship~~

Life without friendship....
is like the dawn without the sun.

Life without friendship....
is like the sky without the moon
when the evening has begun.

Life without friendship....
is like a rose without rain.

Life without friendship....
just wouldn't be the same.

Life without friendship....
is like a ship without a sea.

Life without friendship....
just could not be without a friend like you for me.

Always Do Your Best, and Your Dreams Will Come True
by Collin McCarty

It's not always easy to know
which path to follow,
which decision to make,
or what to do.

Life is a series of new horizons,
new hopes, new days, and changes
that come to you.
And we wll need some help with these things
from time to time.

Remember these things: Dream it. Do it.
And discover how special you are
Be Positive, for your attitude
will affect the outcome of many things
Ask for help when you need it;
seek the wisdom the world holds
and hold on to it.
Make some progress every single day
Begin. Believe. And become

Give yourself all the credit you're due
don't shortchange your qualities, your abilities,
or any of the things that are s unique about you
Remember how precious ife can be.
Imagine. Invest the time it takes
to rech out for your dreams;
it will bring you happiness that no
money on earth can buy.
Don't be afraid; no mountain is to big to climb
if you do it at your own pace.

What's the best thing to do?
That's simple:
Do your best
And everything else will fall into place
